    Baalbek, Archives of an Eternity is an exhibition curated by Vali Mahlouji. It was shown at Sursock Museum, Beirut, Lebanon, from 28 June to 22 September, 2019:

    Baalbek, Archives of an Eternity investigates the site of Baalbek. It reconstructs a complex network of histories and readings, encompassing the pre-historic origins of the site, its rise to prominence, mythologies, functions, occupations, appropriations, its role in identity politics, its role in modern national and political agenda, its hosting of the Baalbek International Festival, and its contemporary reality. The project brings together archaeological, ethnographic, anthropological, cultural, and artistic perspectives to unpack the history of Baalbek from its origins to the contemporary moment. It attempts to ascertain if, and how, Baalbek operates as a signifier, a point of reference, and an identity marker throughout history.
